Swim in Spout Run Waterfall


Added by Jess Fischer

A beautiful spot to cool off during the summer, spout run has freezing spring water year round. 

Coordinates and directions for the upper falls: 39.067196, -78.003763 are the coordinates for the road. As you are driving you will see an area on the right of the road where cars have pulled off. On the left you will see a gap in the trees and No Trespassing signs. Right to the left of these signs and clearing you will see a narrow dirt path that leads steeply downhill. Follow this down about 30 feet and you are at the base of the falls!

Coordinates and directions for the lower falls: 39.070982, -78.003467 are the coordinates for the road by the lower falls. Again you will see a grassy area that looks like cars have pulled off in the past. It will be on your left going towards the falls. There will be a No Trespassing sign and right under that sign you will see a path that leads back into the woods. Follow this path about 30 feet and you will come to where the creek meets the Shenandoah River. Look up to your right and you will see the waterfall and rope swing.
